Scheduling messages

It can be quite useful to plan your messages in advance, for example a marketing campaign over a bank holiday weekend when no one will be in your office to perform a send.
Echo allows you to set up the message in advance and it will automatically be sent at your requested time. You can do this for either Simple or Bulk messages. At the bottom of the send screen you’ll have two options:

Send later will let you pick a date and time to send the message.

Clicking in the Date field will present a calendar pop up which can easily be used to select the date of the send.

Then enter the time you want the message to be sent in 24h so 23:05

Check that the Timezone is correct, else your messages will be sent at a different time.

When ready simply click the Schedule messages button.


You can cancel messages up to 5 minutes before they are scheduled.
You can’t edit a scheduled batch, only cancel and resubmit it.
